Halloween cloth is still in process and the air is fresh and clear, a little woodsmoke wafting through it. Today is my last post for a while until I find my way back. There will also be a short gap over at Diaries (direct link to today's entry) .
This morning I woke, made a fire because it really cooled down last night. Made coffee because I am back to that again, Did laundry, did this and that. And after a few hours realized I had not looked at the time, turned on the computer and had no idea what day it was. I didn't even have my glasses on. I thought how great that was. With cooler temperatures coming I imagined the green outside ssssslowly turning into red and orange. And it seems, in the cool of the night, indeed Miss Maple had the same idea. I like the turning, the in between, so much better than the sudden brown that can happen in a dry late season like this.
It got better from there. When I noticed the face of In Between.
Hello In Between.
Late last night, green slipped into blue, right there in my hands. (this cloth continued from here.)
Reassurance , up top, is taking the place of Placekeeper for a bit while I repair some links that some howslipped into no where when I wasn't looking. Working on it.
It is unusually green here for October. The season waits for my own turning. It feels like that.
So I have begun the other wing of color. Today it is green.
The hoop has become like a temporary basket, to hold my intent and let me stay a while in each circle of holding, gathering. As I work, it as if these gifts from the Piece-makers have flown in again and again, landing here in my lap. It has to be everyday now, this cloth, in my hands. Every day. To build the spirit of a cloth it has to be right there. With you. Today I send love and reassurance to Wendy's kids who wait patiently for the Magic Feather Cloth I call Home.
